Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi Starts Strong

If a dozen Flash-animated shows are green-lit tomorrow morning, it’s undoubtedly a good thing for the Flash world at large. But it wouldn’t mean a damn thing if those shows were summarily canceled 6 weeks later, right? So put your hands together for the latest ratings success – ‘Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi,’ the new King (or should I say ‘Queen’) of the Kids 2-11 ratings segment (source: Animation Insider).

‘Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi,’ the plucky, eye-candy-filled, relationship-driven (sorry guys, no fights or power-ups in this show) has delivered the goods for Cartoon Network, the undisputed #1 supporter of Flash animation on US television. With the strongest ratings ever for an original premiere in the Kids 2-11 segment, ‘Puffy’ seems well poised for a lengthy run. Girls, not surprisingly, have taken to the show in droves, increasing CN’s female eyeball count by over 60% during that time slot.

As far as the show itself, the producers have chosen the perfect animation platform for the show’s look and feel (it’s animated by Renegade Animation). The simple, iconic designs and the Hanna Barbera-esque appeal make this is an ideal show for Flash, and I look forward to several more seasons of this beautiful show.

  1. Well I’ve heard some of their work like on some shows on cartoon network: Teen titans. i I have to admit they’re pretty good. But the whole anime series is…well how do i put this gently, really corny. But over all they’re a pretty good band/whatever.

    Well at first when I saw the kemersial I thought the whole series would be pretty suckish. But while I was watching TV nothing else was good enough to watch so I was forced to watch Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi. Then my addiction for the show grew stronger when I saw the episode Save the Farm. For me I guess this show is getting prepared for a long long run.

  3. Great blog, keep up the good work. Glad to see sites like this.

    I seen this show about a couple of times. You could hate me or not, I like this show. Its a cute show and only promblem is they need abit more energy in the plot, thats all. The real Ami and Yumi are really cool, had really great rock/pop song (I haven’t heard any good rock songs for ages until I heard their songs). This is a great show for kids along with other cartoons in CN.
